The United States has imposed Iran-related sanctions on four individuals and six companies, according to a statement on the US Treasury Department’s website. The decision is another move in the Trump administration’s pressure campaign against the Islamic Republic.
The development comes two days after the news website Axios reported that the Trump administration wants to drown Tehran in sanctions in order to make life difficult for Democrat Joe Biden, who is projected to win the presidential election.
According to Axios, which cited two unnamed Israeli sources, the Trump administration plans to work with the Gulf states and Israel in order to make it harder for Biden to return the United States to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreement, which the US president has described as the worst deal ever negotiated. To achieve this, the White House plans to impose sanctions on Tehran non-stop until Trump’s last day in the Oval office (20 January).
